Once upon a time (actually back in 1999-2000,) Linda and I both lived in Europe for our work. Belgium, to be exact. Being the chileheads that we are (and were,) we routinely bemoaned the fact that we did not have ready access to good hot sauces while we lived there. What little we had were ones that we had taken with us. Once they were gone, it took some doing to replenish the supply.
So why does this matter now?
It doesn’t, save for the fact that we are making a triumphant return to the European continent this upcoming May for vacation. We will be making our way back to the Netherlands to spend time in Amsterdam, and will make a trip to a country we’ve not yet visited, being Spain, to spend a few days in and around Barcelona. We’ll also touch down in England on the way back, so we’ll be visiting no less than three countries during our seven-day jaunt overseas.
So, we’re gonna be taking a bottle of hot sauce with us to join us on a world tour. Which one? Well, this is where we need some help from our readers. We are going to ask for nominations/votes for a sauce that we’ll take with us to be pictured in several places overseas to show just what an adventure that hot sauce will have. We’ll take a bottle of a bottle of our own if we have it, but a manufacturer who nominates a sauce of their own can make it eligible to be voted upon for this trip. The catch? If a manufacturer nominates one of their sauces, and it WINS the vote, then they have to be willing to donate it to us so we can pack it along with our other trip swag.
So, whose sauce shall it be? Nominations are accepted for a particular company/manufacturer only at this time. Exact sauce to be determined later.
